that we have read, that technology and the enhanced use of auto maition and technology have been a recurring theme for the department of building and inspection and i didn't see any emphasis and there was no mention of that in terms of the budget or at least not with any emphasis, i also note having red last year's grand jury report that the city has a very, very poor track record of implementing technology and yet, it seems to have been established that you know, hand held devices in the field, and better coordination of records from different departments that there are a wide variety of ways that technology could improve the efficiency of the staff, and the customer service, if you will. so i wondered, where that is in the budget, and what safe guards that the technology could be properly implemented. >> thank you. >> hi, again, robert, i was just wondering about the comments of the open notices of violation. and my question is how are the down stream effects not relevant? the permits that are applied for the inspection fees, the reinspection fees? i mean, if you look at the ja

. there are people and technology that say this is a place they want to be. entrepreneurs say this is where they want to be. when companies like facebook are started at an institution like harvard and a pier, you start to recognize why this is so special and fiber and why innovation is a bleeding heart economy. so let me try to give some brief introductions about our panel today. i have to confess, i only just met one of our panelists, lee said dyson, the ceo of coverity. she got a ph.d. in physics from mit but felt the urge to come out here to california and she did her research at stanford and lawrence berkeley. that is an indication we are getting smart people like her out to california to start companies like hers. 15 employees in 2008. it is interesting, we talk about cloud computing and these technology companies, but she takes electronic waste that is rich in carbon and recycles that into oil for plastics and a variety of other things. i wish i had more time to talk to you and get to know you because i am sure there's an interesting story that you will really enjoy hearing from her. you have a
, technology tv and the policy issues that accompany them. >> host: so, gary shapiro give us a snapshot of ces international 2013. >> guest: this event has been phenomenal. we've had more companies and more spaces, more innovation and more excitement than ever i can recall. you know in these tough economic times it's nice of to have some positive news, and there's a lot out there from all sorts of companies. the big ones like intel and qualcomm and samsung, and the smallest one. we have this area of the show for start-ups with 150 companies with ideas and some people are coming back from there and saying these are really breakthrough technologies, these are great. but it's just the american way you know? you have this ability of anyone to come up with an idea and expose it, and that's why we run this event. it's for anyone. it's not just for -- the big companies actually respect that we have the small companies here, and that's how we run this organization. >> host: where do you see growth in consumer electronics in the next couple of years? >> guest: ing there's growth in several categories.
is really focused a lot of reports on our lack of technology to sit in on the group. >> it might be worth while to let them know. >> good. >> okay. >> actually, additional state quarter meetings are going to be held subsequently and they will be involved in the testing and review and feedback of the citizen portal so that is going to occur. do you have any questions on this subject? >> good job. >> okay. >> keep it moving. >> yeah. this is going to go ahead and talk about the technology project. >> yeah. >> so the several of them that are critical but the most critical one is the infrastructure refresh which is the improvement. the proposal was submitted two years ago to the college, which of the committee and information technology to revamp our service this is about 7 years old. and we started this process two years ago, the city export and the city on committee of technology over sees the technology projects in the city and they do and were pushing for consolidation, as a result of that, actually, we were approved to go ahead and do the refresh of the infrastructure in conjunction with
'll want to play games and surf on something the size of a bed. we mentioned mobile technology at the top of the show. when it comes to one of the world's biggest industries, video gaming, mobile is definitely the way to go. here's how some of the big evidence, hottest video game companies want you to take their games wherever you go. ces is further evidence that we love our mobile devices. >> products for -- >> maybe not as much as this guy, but gamers love their mobile devices. and now their favorite games are coming to them. this, for example, is the razor edge tablet. a way starting at about $1,000 to take all your games and computer functionality with you. >> the whole point is that it's a tablet, it's a p.c., it's a console. >> and it lets you play on the go. you no longer need a stand-alone console connected to your tv to play. now you can go anywhere. >> there's a lot of restrictions with a lot of tablets these days. there's -- i mean, they have games like angry birds, yes, those are fun games. but we're looking to, you know, reach out to the hard-core gamers and really introduce
had about technological unemployment by a fellow named john keens in 1930. >> we've always been both correct and wrong. the correct part of this idea of technological unemployment is automation and technology do destroy jobs. they automate jobs away. at the same time, technology creates new opportunities, entrepreneurs create new companies, new industries. >> created more jobs than destroyed. >> unbelievable amount of jobs. so we've had, even in this era of intense industrialization for the past couple of centuries, we had pretty close to full employment. it's this really great run. my deepest worry is that that run might be coming to an end and that things actually are different this time. >> why? >> because when i look at the bundle of stuff that any of us can offer to the work force or offer to an employer, all the previous ways of technology combined don't encroach on that bundle very much. >> the steam engine took away or comparative advantage lifting heavy stuff, unless you're a circus strong man or athlete, no one hires to you do that any more. but the encroachment of technolo
people are coming back and saying this is a really breakthrough technology and these are great but it's just the american way. you have the ability of anyone to come up with an idea and expose it. that is why we have this event. the big companies respect that we have the small companies there and that is how we run this organization. >> host: where do you see growth in consumer electronics in the next couple of years? >> guest: there are growth in several categories. sometimes categories go through a lull and the rise. we had the video area that went through a lull but it's getting back with connected to be in very thin tv so that's exciting. other areas of standing wireless. the fcc changed -- chairman made a huge announcement. that's only for wifi but all sorts of products that you can envision and the first-grade product they came from unlicensed spectrum garage door opener and accord cordless phone and baby monitor. these were things no one anticipated. it's getting pretty crowded here especially at airports and it's tough to see your wifi so that's great. biometric sensing clearl
's talk about the technology, what is it and how does it work? there are three types of solar actually when you sauk about solar. i want to avoid the confusion to make sure we're focusing on the right one. two of them involve heating water and they're very viable technologies, can be very coast effective but we're not going to deal with them right now. one is solar pool heating. it pumps the water up there, heats it, runs it through there, the sun heats it and back into the pool. this one is called solar thermal or solar hot water. it heats domestic hot water or d.h.w. that's your hot water that you use four showers and dishwashers. we're going to talk about solar electric. they have the same technology as computer chips. they're similar in structure to that tran cystor-like computer chip technology based on silicon. the best thing about them is there are no moving parts and they last a long time. there are cells, modules, and arrays. a cell is one of these pieces here. it's a small unit wired together in a certain way to produce half a volt. these are hooked together in whatever size
? is there a bubble? >> i would like to speak about the clean technology sector. there was a little bit of a bubble that emerged in 2005, 2006, 2007 time frame. what has happened since then is you see the landscape changed. there have been a lot of companies and vc's, founders, that are focused on very few investments in companies but are in it for the long run. the time and invested it takes to build a clean tech company. the difference with clean tech, there might be large facilities required, investment to build your first plant, for instance. we are seeing a change in the landscape. one thing i want to add, too, for clean tech, there are organizations like the clean tech opened that foster innovation and identify and help on to produce with that system, present their idea, put together their business plan, attract the mentors and advisers to help them build their technology. the incubators are contributing to a maturing clean tech and biotech sector -- sector. >> just a short comment. we focus in this building, a research center, on technology. some of it is near term, some of it is very long t
sectors under the president has been technology. second only to consumer discretionaries. the tech sector up more than 100% over the past four years. and 13 days of trading into 2013, the tech sector continuing its gains of just under 2% and this week is a big week for tech earnings, everyone. coming up, we will break down the most important things you need to know about the big reports. and are you better off than you were four years ago? well, at least your 401(k) might be. how do you make sure that your portfolio has returns? like all of this, we have a guy that can help you. the multistrategy income fund is outperforming 99% of its peers. it is up 24% year over year. angel oak cofounder and chief investment officer will be joining me during this hour to tell you why he is going big on real estate. plus, we've seen the beginnings of a rebound in the housing recovery, but is washington's best investment the white house? all right, i'm going to tell you what its value. president obama is officially sworn in for his second term and using the opportunity to call for unity in washington. pe
are right behind me. to some of the leading technology companies in the valley. we have companies that raise anywhere from a thousand dollars to $25 million that have sort of been housed with us. some of the coolest things that have happened at the hatchery two people sitting next to each other working on the same app for six months decided to merge and raise a million dollars for their company. so, collaborative consumption is something we truly believe in and having spent a couple of years working with the likes of jane, brian, tina lee and a bunch of other people who have been sort of working on this open data problem, it's been sort of exciting to sort of see it come to fruition today and see sort of the progress that they've made. so, for me this is sort of -- it's been fun to sort of watch this team of people come together and do what they do and make san francisco a 21st century city. so, you know, it's an honor to welcome the mayor back to the hatchery, the new hatchery. we invite you, supervisor chiu, to our monthly infamous happy hours where bourbon and branch caters to meet with o
ago, i like all of you started a company. i started in i-ti a technology company in the 1.0 world. it was a company that created technology to connect citizens better with government * . i ran it for almost nine years. and when i was elected to office four years ago, i was unfortunately more surprised than i wanted to be about how far behind san francisco government was. this was very 2008, 2009. with you i'm really proud of the leaps and bounds we have taken as a city * . i was proud in 2010 to help move forward legislation to really bring together city departments to work in a coordinated way with our committee on information technology. to help create a chief information officer position for the city. i was also proud to work with then mayor newsome in passing the first generation of open data legislation that we have. but as our civil grand jury in june pointed out, our i-t in san francisco is still in need of a culture shock. and this is where all of us come in today. we have 200 data sets that have already been put out there, but by and large the data sets put out by city go
, the online technology tool that the office is working with, are developing for businesses to be able to understand the permits that are required. jane gong provided you with a demonstration we're just about to launch. so at our next meeting she will be providing you with the full demonstration, because the tool will be ready to go live on the 28th or shortly thereafter. so all the items that we have been working on and working with the company will be done and complete. the online business portal project update, the comprehensive one, erica has been working on this. we had the departments fill out a comprehensive survey. and so their deadline was this week and we have pretty much all departments' surveys completed and in hand and eric and i are going to start working on that, taking a look at it, both to help with either gleaning some information for streamlining and permits to improvements to take but also make the assessment on what it will take to build the comprehensive portal in terms of time and technology needed to develop the portal. and then as a conjunctto that, eric and
technology sector. supervisor farrell mention the city as a partner in the effort.one of the commitments it was unheard of by many of the tech companies, the same with tax exclusion that we also did on stock compensation was that tech companies were committed on working with the city of san francisco on hiring residents from many neighborhoods that don't have access to the growing technology sector whether it is the mission, tenderloin, south of market and western addition; and happy to have cosponsors breed, cohen, avalos - to see what it is that we can do to partner with our private tech sector to ensure that we are opening up and creating a pipeline of jobs whether it is for our students born and raised in san francisco who might not get the type of education to be competitive for these jobs; whether it is adults that i found themselves unemployed in an economy not doing well but need additional training for these jobs. what is it that we can do to partner with the mayor's office in our tech companies to develop programs that would address three different population needs so they
agency that historically has suffered from maybe the worst website and some of the worst technology in government. and over the last few years we have worked really hard to improve that park user's experience through the use of technology. and i want to start out before we talk a little about the app saying a if you thank yous. i really want to thank mayor lee to his incredible commitment to technology and frankly the recreation and park department. i want to thank supervisor chiu who has been a leader both in the parks world and in the technology world. sf city has really been a driving force behind helping government think about new ways, new and improved ways maybe for some of you they're old ways now. but new and improved ways for government to reach users of our programs and services. and i want to say the last special thank you to the folks from apple-liscious. this thing is awesome. this past year, the trust for public land which is a national parks organization determined that san francisco, which has 4,000 acres of open space and over 220 parks, over 15% of the city's land
on current tv. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> gavin: padma warrior drives innovation at cisco as chief technology and strategy officer she's charged with coming up with the company's vision for the future. that's a tall order even for a giant technology company like cisco, but as you'll find out there is a good reason why she has been named one of the most powerful women in the world. padma, thank you for coming on the show. you started with cisco in 2007. >> mm-hmm. >> gavin: what world are we living in today compared to where we were just six or so years ago? >> it's actually amazing how much technology has moved. just in four years we've seen the explosion of mobile. i actually came to cisco before i came to cisco i was at motorola, a company that invented the cell phone back in the 80s. it was initially conceived as the business person's device. today there are more than 6 billion mobile subscribers. that mobile platform is really changing how we access information, what do we do with it how we communicate with each other and how business gets done in the future. that's rapidly changed. i wou
with a look ahead at the world of technology and a conversation with roger mcnamee of elevation partners. >> i think the search engine was the result of a mistake that won't be made again. so we'll always have search engines, but every app on apple's operating system is effectively a search engine of one kind or another. if you go into yelp it's because you're looking for a restaurant. if you gointo skypit's because you're looking to call somebody up. if you go into twitter you're looking for a -- >> rose: so the application you go to is because that's what you're searching for. >> effectively. that's a much better way than a one size fits all search engine. >> rose: a program note, jeff bridge it is actor and bernie glassman were scheduled for this evening's program. they will be seen at a later date. tonight gun control and technology when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. rose: one month has passed since the massacre at sandy hook elementary school where a gunman fatally shot 20 children and six adults. the trag
, it is the city wide consolidation that was searching for this. >> okay. >> so the next, technology improvement is the cashiering. the primary department that is working on the implementation for the department and we have been working with them alongside starting before this development and contract. we have actually right now, the interface and as soon as the testing is complete. it has been set up for training on the cashiers as soon as it is complete we will do the training and improve the position. for now, the tentative days is the middle of february for the tax collect and her we are planing to go right after within a couple of weeks after the tax collecters. the next project was the refresh fof the computers for the staff. swre been having a three year replacement cycle, where we have deployed computers, every year, we have got about 50 to 100 computers that we deploy. so it is the oldest computer that will would be like four years at the most. so to have been up to date we have purchased the latest of 50 commuters over the counter staff on the fifth floor and they will be getting the n
it will take to build the comprehensive portal in terms of time and technology needed to develop the portal. and then as a conjunctto that, eric and i have been going out to merchant associations, business associations to solicit participation to get their members for merchant associations/business associations to have their members fill out a business survey and we'll be sending that to you as well, for you to be able to take a look at. to get their feedback in terms of businesses, 0-5 years, we're asking them to fill out a survey about their experience in opening a business and then for businesses over five years, we're asking them about their experience about their ongoing engagement with the city. so what improvements do they see? what improvements would they like to see? what would make things easier in terms of their ongoing engagement? you know, obviously we're looking to see what kind of feedback they might give us in terms of direction, in terms of technology improvements and things of that sort. so that is the update. and once eric and i are targeting sort of early-march to hav
accumulated technology and human resources related to nuclear power. we would like the chance to put these to use. meeting partners's request and safety will be the major premises of this effort. we want to keep exporting our nuclear power infrastructure. >> japan has been promoting exports of the generation facilities even after the disaster in fukushima. the previous administration led by the democratic party signed pacts with countries such as vietnam and jordan in 2011, enabling it to transport the technology. the comments suggest the government is willing to follow the new government policy. prime minister abe is riding high according to a poll. voters handed his administration a victory in a landslide election. two-thirds say they support abe's new cabinet. pollsters interviewed 1,138 people over the weekend. 64% of them back abe's cabinet. that is three times higher than the approval rating former prime minister's cabinet had before the election. 39% of those who support abe's cabinet say it seems better than others. 27% say they have expectations for its policies. 12% say the
for this evening's program. they will be seen at a later date. tonight gun control and technology when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. rose: one month has passed since the massacre at sandy hook elementary school where a gunman fatally shot 20 children and six adults. the tragedy has reignited a debate about gun violence in america. today president obama announced new measures for improving gun control. >> this is our first task as a society: keeping our children safe. this is how we will be judged. and their voices should compel us to change and that's why last month i asked joe to lead an effort, along with members of my cabinet to come up with some concrete steps we can take right now to keep our children safe. to help prevent mass shootings. to reduce the broader epidemic of gun violence in this country. and we can't put this off any longer. >> rose: his 23 executive actions are being called the largest reform proposal on guns in a generation. he called for expanded background checks, a renewed ban on assault wea
was the flow at the end of the day, and would you go into next week holding technology? is that another weak spot, do you think, next week as stephanie just pointed out that a lot of industrial names, the real economy stories, are going to start driving things? >> well, maybe. they were buying beamary little bit and beamer reports next week, too. you can't turn your head for a minute in this market. washington puts out a little blush they will start cooperating with each other, that seems to be a little bit of a catalyst. kind of gave us anni impetus foa bust. if you go back two years, 2011, bump early in the year and the markets sold of held and then sold off. last year it looked like it might follow that same pattern, and then it didn't. it continued to rally into the close. so you almost have a january effect, a bit of a performance. starting early and people getting involved right away. involve picked up today. an expiration that accounted for some of it. money flow looks like it's coming in. seeing on the institutional side and no reason why you wouldn't be involved. if you try to buy t
on the current technology initiatives in sfsud. and i want to thank matt kensey and his team, we just have been able to advance by leaps and bounds. all of our schools are wired for the internet. there is still some last mile connectivity issues. but i want to acknowledge our previous superintendent, carlos garcia that made sure that was money in the qta dedicated to infrastructure. and some of you know in a previous life i worked in high-tech. and when i came to san francisco and saw some of the antiquated systems we use in the city and the school system, it was appalling. but in a short time they have brought our schools up to the 21st century, and it was good to hear a reporting on that. and we secondly took up a pathway to community contracting and hiring a resolution on local hire. and we discussed the proposed resolution, suggested some language changes. there will be further discussions in january and february. we were talking about having stakeholder meetings during this time to really flush out that resolution. staff is hoping to put together a first draft in february for folks to revi
investors? we ask technology analyst scott kessler. >> tom: and the comeback in housing could be a boon for truck sales. how u.s. automakers are getting ready for a pickup in pickup sales. >> susie: that and more tonight on "n.b.r." on early economic numbers as well as from the corporate corner. we'll have more on facebook and its big announcement coming up in a moment. over all, stocks were lower with investors reacting to some weakness we saw in u.s. manufacturing. buyers, though, were able to step in, with the blue chips moving higher. it was disappointment over the facebook announcement that led to more selling in textbook shares as apple's stock continued for the second day in a row. the dow industrials closing up 27 points, and the nasdaq lost six, with the s&p 500 rising almost two points. >> as tom mentioned, we got an early read on how american factors are doing. and it is not good. manufacturing contracted for the sixth straight month. and the federal reserve tallied the numbers and said the index for december was pressured by a drop i in new orders and shipment. and the condi
, stormwater development -- these are independent technologies. but what came first, most often, was a water supply system. the basic system is essentially the same as we used back in the 19th century. and in some cases, some of the same pipes. grusheski: philadelphia was the first american city to develop a water system and to take on as a municipal responsibility water delivery to all of its citizens. when william penn laid out the city, he actually chose a spot of land that had a lot of groundwater. however, by 1730, 30,000 people lived within the first seven blocks of philadelphia, next to the delaware river. well, 30,000 people caused filth in the city and polluted their water sources. the groundwater was not potable. and in one year, 1/6 of the population died of yellow fever. now, they didn't know at the time that yellow fever was carried by mosquitoes. but the health issue was major in that first movement to build a water system. narrator: so they set out to find the cleanest source of water. although the majority of philadelphia's water now comes from the delaware river, early engin
a lot of panels up there already but doesn't fill all the roof tops and there is new technology coming out all the time. we have been challenged in the solar technology arena because traditional technology has heavy weight technology that always challenged the integrity of roof tops, and moscone is the one we found and let that be for one of these companies and light ultralight technology and use, cheaper way of getting solar out there and we're going to allow them to demonstrate their product on top of our mos connie roof and that is an example we're doing in utilizing all of the agency's cooperations and make sure the start ups can use real testing sites in the city. that is thanks to the hardand kelly and the manager at puc and barbara hale and the second thing we're going to do is take a page out of what we're doing with clean tech and biotech life sciences. you see what mission bay is doing. they have for the last ten years building up a ecosystem of pharmaceutical companies and san francisco medical center and integrated around with the research teams to form a very strong res
